54 percent of global banking executives believe that customer buying behavior is shifting from wanting products and services to experiences. Consumers are no longer going through life looking for mundane transactions that will either succeed or not; the everyday consumer is now on the hunt for a more enjoyable banking experience and will go to great lengths to find the right business that will provide them with exactly that.
San Diego,CA. — October 31, 2016 — Chatmeter is partnering with Yelp Knowledge to integrate Yelp reviews into Chatmeter’s local brand management platform, which currently analyzes reviews, rankings and listings for over 1,000,000 storefronts across the US. This partnership gives Chatmeter the ability to display full-text Yelp reviews, along with existing data streams from other channels such as Google, Facebook, Bing, Tripadvisor, Yahoo and many industry-specific review sites. This will make it simpler than ever for Chatmeter’s customers to manage their brand presence in a fragmented media and local listings landscape.
In May of 2016, San Diego-based startup Chatmeter raised its Series-A round of funding to help grow its team and continuously improve its local brand management platform. Chatmeter has used the new funding to quadruple their team in the past 6 months and move into a new office twice the size at the innovative and recently updated Columbia Square building in Little Italy.
Chatmeter started off as a realization that customer reviews were going to have a huge impact on decision making for consumers looking for local products and services. However, there was no way to manage this huge influx of reviews in the fragmented world of local search. Collin Holmes, Founder and CEO, set out in late 2009 to build the very first mobile local search platform aimed to help marketers, agencies, and local businesses improve their online presence and reputation.
We hear businesses on a daily basis assume that the majority of reviews online are a result of customers having negative experiences. The truth is, only about 20% of customerswill post a review after a negative experience, and about the same would submit a review after a positive experience. The majority of negative shopping experiences are actually never recorded and fall on deaf employee ears. While this is good news to most storefronts, the problem is that negative feedback, in fact, helps a business improve operations, retain customers, and avoid repeated mistakes. Without knowing what is turning customers away, the result could be more, negatively, powerful than having 5 stars for all of your locations.
American Blue Ribbon Holdings, the eighth largest full service restaurant holding company in the United States, has always placed an emphasis on guest feedback. ABRH has created a process to monitor and respond to customer feedback by utilizing Chatmeter’s Services to monitor their restaurants' reputation and online listings. Online reviews are now considered one of the fastest-growing social marketing tools, which can be leveraged to improve existing marketing efforts while boosting on-site conversion, traffic and engagement.

Zomato is actually the largest Restaurant Review Site in the world, even more popular than Yelp in every country except the US (we’re actually late adopters for once). The acquisition was the first US venture for the New Delhi based company, spreading its platform to 22 Countries, boosting its restaurant listings from 330,000 to 1 Million. So popular, that Chatmeter has decided to add the Review/Search Site to it’s list of provider partners and display all information within our platform.

Ask any Millennial; they will tell you the only way to find out more about a company (or anything for that matter) is by searching online. They probably don’t know Yellow Pages is named after the color of the book or that a Penny Saver isn’t just about saving a copper Abraham.
